Gunner’s Mate 1st Class Joseph Jeffcott, who is attached to a Navy Reserve unit in Columbus, Ohio, was nominated for the Reserve Sailor of the Year honor last fall.
The Navy is not Jeffcott’s only military experience. He joined the Marines when he was younger and served four years of active duty and two years in the reserves before getting out in 1995. He thought he might be too old for the demands of the Marine Corps, so he enlisted in the Navy Reserves. I would like to shake his hand!
